FAITH TO FAITH

Through their repentance-faith encounter with God the new Believer is given a marvellous understanding:

"The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God," Romans 8'16.  

Paul's remarkable encounter was the beginning of his Kingdom life of faith. His understanding of it and his disposition towards it is out there for all to hear:

"I am not ashamed of the Good News of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith," Romans 1'16-17.

::

The miracle is, an unbeliever can be delivered from continual ardent unbelief-disbelief into a lifestyle of continual worshipful faith toward God.

Daily, Believers "walk by faith, not by sight" (2 Corinthians 5'7) and this faith "comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God," Romans 10'17.

::

"Therefore, having been justified by faith,

we have peace with God

through our Lord Jesus Christ,

through whom also we have access by faith into this grace

in which we stand,

and rejoice in hope of the glory of God,"

Romans 5'1-2.
